I LOVE MY TROOPER

4 posts in this topic

I can't walk by my Trooper without taking a second look! I have never bought a single thing in my life that I didn't later modify from stock form. I have always put my signature on everything I owned, something to seperate it from the rest of the herd. When researching UTV's I read all of the problems with the different models. It did just so happen that the Trooper did seem to have the majority of them, but it was also far less money. With everything to consider there was one key word that seperated it from all of the other UTV's on the market:

TUBE CHASSIS!

That was all I needed to know. With that I knew that no matter the problem I could modify, customize, and retrofit anything my mind came up with--the sky is the limit! Add in the great 85hp Chery motor and it was a done deal for the price. Would I like to have a RZR XP? Sure, but not for $20k after taxes and fees. Besides, I would get bored being the king of the hill and not having something to shoot for. My original goal was to compete with my buddy's RZR4 & RZR S. We currently go tit for tat in everything we compete in with our UTV's--except for sticker price :P I can only imagine the improvements I could make to my Trooper if I invested the money that they had into their RZR's.

ITS DIFFERENT! When I go out with my buds, nobody goes up to see their UTV's. RZR's are a dime a dozen. They all walk over to see the massive 30" tires on my Trooper. Then they comment on the 4 cylinder motor, then the axles, then the stick shift, then the lockers, then the size, etc, etc!

I just felt I had to share my enthusiasm for my Trooper after some of the bashing we have given it lately. If and when Joyner USA gets up and running again the values of our Troopers will increase significantly. I wish them the best of luck! The only dowside is we won't be the only Troopers out there anymore :( Heck, maybe our 2008 & 2009 Troopers will become collector cars--JK--LOL

I haven't even gotten mine out on the trail yet. Thanks to you guys I know some of the things I need to address first to remain safe and prolong the parts on my Joyner. But I am excited and nothing written about has really scared me away from them. As stated before everything has its issues. I'd rather have one with support from guys like on the website here with the potential that the joyner has. I also love the price point and like the added size as I am 6'2" and fit with plenty of room in my trooper.

The more I play and work on my trooper the more I love it too. The only time I lose to my dads rzr4 is on steep technical rock crawling but I just bought the fuel controller so maybe I can get that low end grunt I need to beat him there too.
